Dear Joseph Nam Nguyen, Anne Thi and the Humpert Family, Everyone in our Viet Waves Community Singing Group in Houston is saddened by the news about the death of Joseph Nam Nguyen’s adopted mother, the wonderful Mrs. Therese E. Ruschman Humpert. Joseph Nam Nguyen, our singing group leader, has been a gracious, energetic, and conscientious leader for over 2 decades. Off and on, through his conversations, we heard about his wonderful American family in Kentucky, whom he wishes to visit whenever he has time, about the material and spiritual support he got from the Humpert family, way back in 1975 when Nam was a refugee who had just escaped from the Communists, leaving everything behind. For all of us Vietnamese war refugees, no word can completely express our deep gratitude to this land and the people of the United States. This country has been so generous in accepting us and also giving us assistance to restart our new life in America. Our leader, Joseph is luckier than most of us. He has had the support and the love of his new family, the Humpert family In this, we share our sentiment with Joseph Nam Nguyen towards his American family when he was informed of the sad news. And so, please accept our deepest sympathy, our thoughts and prayers for the departed, and May She Rest In Peace. For All Members of The Viet Community Singing of Houston Dr LinhChan Brown Ph.D.

Great lady who my late wife Susan Brewer Ashcraft introduced me to along with Harry. I always appreciated the kindness they showed to my wife and her dad Bo Brewer. God bless the Humpert family.

Grandma, No matter where I am in the world, I could always count on your love and acceptance. You were the most gentle person I ever knew. I will be forever grateful for the opportunity to eat dinner at your table and say goodbye to you before this deployment. I will miss you in this life, but I will see you in the next and if we're lucky we'll get to play a game of Hand and Foot together.

Bill & Jane I join you in prayer as you bury your mother/mother-in-law. I know there are few words to meet the sadness of her passing which touches your hearts. And yet because we are believers, we rejoice at her next stage of life in the Trinity of God's being. We carry in our hearts the mystery which combines sadness and the joy and we trust that the God of our faith will continue to have our backs ... Fr. Gene

Dear Harry, Beth and John, and the entire Humpert family, Though I am saddened to learn of Tess' passing this week, I rejoice with you all knowing that she is now seeing JESUS face to face, enjoying the glories of heaven, and has received her eternal reward. Tess' warm and loving acceptance of me like a daughter was a joy and comfort to my soul. Thank you, Beth and Humpert family, for sharing Tess with me. May the LORD comfort your hearts with His peace and presence, and may you cherish all the beautiful memories that you have of the wonderful life she lived. The LORD bless you richly. Love, Maureen

Sending Condolences to the Humpert family. My dad and mom (Pete & Rita Weisenberger) often spoke of Harry and Tess Humpert from the Burnett Building & Loan. My Uncle Bill and Aunt Bobbie Weisenberger also spoke of them. Only Aunt Bobbie is still living, in south Florida with her daughter. I also just discovered that Tess is my 4th cousin twice removed, and my dad's 4th cousin once removed, and my grandfather's fourth cousin.

Dear Beth and John, Beth, I have prayed for the repose of your mother's soul. Please accept our condolences. " 'He will wipe away every tear from their eyes, and death shall be no more, neither shall there be mourning nor crying nor pain any more, for the former things have passed away.' And he who sat upon the throne said, 'Behold, I make all things new.' " -- Rev. 21:4-5 In the love of Christ, Ed, Ese & Luke Lekson
